I can't tell you how much fun I haven't had playing St.Nick on GAMEBASE... First thing to know is that SANTA is supposed to move more than a tiny step at a time... that's what happens when using the cursor keys on my laptop! Next using the TI ARROW KEYS(S,D,E,X) sets SANTA in motion on the second step, but with a delay... hold the key to long... SANTA keeps going... Arrgh... Next, My images won't run on FG99.
Finally I found a .RPK that runs well on MESS 2014.
Now I can detest this game in its full flower.

  P.S. I'll give it another chance later when and if I calm back down!

  P.P.S. Did I mention that I broke the S key cap off my keyboard. :rolling:

Ha!!!! I always play on the real TI with just keyboard, no joystick.

6,600+ is a tidy score!!!! You're right on the verge of breaking it wide open!!!

I just use a bat handle or tank grip joystick with a TI adapter. I can't use a trac ball. . . it's buried too far.

I tried it for a few minutes this morning before heading out. I did not know the game rules, so I fumbled a bit until I figured it out. I can immediately say that the green elves are already getting on my nerves with their leisurely trolls, and there are only so many times I want to listen to the Holiday tunes during the process!  :(

My score? A grand 320 he he... I can only go up I suppose...

Not bad compared to my first time playing. ;)

Which level are we playing at? Is scoring better with higher levels?

Start anywhere you'd like... the scoring is the same, only the speed and complexity increase as you progress

I don't know why they decided to make Santa so large. It makes it that much harder to tell whether he can squeeze through some spots or not. Got me more times than I care to remember...

I will not play this game until someone beats my score!. Especially levels in series 1 are working on my nerves, time and music wise! . Level 2 onwards/faster are
much better.

Yeah that's not likely to happen... I don't know how your nerves lasted that long!

i have increasingly unkind things to say about this game so far- but i'll keep it PG.

 

i'll see if i can come up with a respectable score this week.
